Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev MacDaddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

2) 2nd annual Boston International Salsa Congress
3) Salsa in Hartford, Wed's.

Dear Salseros,

What can I say? I am proud that the vision of a really cool, classy Friday Night Salsa party has become reality. I get so pumped seeing
so many people - well over 300 again this past Friday - having so
much fun learning to dance salsa and partying with friends.

This week should be another great party. Why? Because we always have awesome parties!

And, as usual, Salsa y Control's Johnny, Felicita, and Andres
Giraldo (and Yvon Cano!) will be teaching the salsa lessons.

Also, we have added to our online salsa video collection with the record-setting salsa lessons and inspired performances from
the summer Wille Colon Concert and other amazing Havana Club
performances. Check them out!

You can find the videos and pictures of last Friday's party online at:

And stay tuned because next week there'll be announcements about
The Salsa Academy, Salsa Tuesdays, and KidsDay.

If you have a suggestion on how we can improve the evening, please send me a note. 

Finally, please forward this blurb along to friends, groups, and relevant
lists, and share this great, big, fun night with other cool people!
